Tell us about AORA.

We do Opinion Automation. Laws, regulations and internal company policies are becoming increasingly complicated, voluminous, and difficult to navigate.

People and businesses need legal opinions on a variety of issues, but a large proportion does not have access to or are priced out of, quality, tailored legal advice. AORA is the first company to make machine-executable law a reality, by codifying legislation to provide legal opinions efficiently, cost-effectively, at scale and in a format and style indistinguishable from those produced by human experts.

We automate one of a legal practitioner's tasks - gathering situational facts from the client, determining a legal opinion by applying legislation and case law relevant to the question raised (e.g. is this REIT structure compliant?) and the facts presented and then writing up the opinion with substantiating legal arguments and citations.  AORA has the greatest impact in areas of great complexity, where the cost of non-compliance or incorrect legal advice is high. Our first product, automating opinions on British and Irish nationality law is launched and is in early commercial use.
